learning the ropes, an update..

my creative space is jam packed with learning the ropes..

our official start date is only 2 weeks away, so we've spent most waking hours training, practicing what we've learned over and over, making mistakes, following our wonderfully patient mentor around and trying to absorb as much as we can.

it's been great fun, and I have to say, I know it's early days and I'm nervous as anything as our start date approaches, but this is such a great job!

the tricky part is being organised with the house keeping and meal preparation.  I think this weekend will need to be spent in the kitchen cooking up a storm and loading up tasty dishes for the freezer to take the pressure off a bit.

As this little bundle grows, night time comes along and I'm exhausted.  It's getting a bit tricky to find a comfortable sleeping position.  It seems baby is seriously in training for the Olympic gymnastic team, and sleep is not as sound as I'd like, so it's nice to be able to work and train from home.

I've not picked up the hook in ages and I miss it.  I'll get back to that soon though, it's always quite therapeutic of an evening and I've gifts I need to make!

  1. Oh I was just wondering the other day how it was all going Mel. I am sure once you get going all will be fine.
    I know what you mean about staying organised..the project I am currently working on has meant things here on the homefront have taken a back seat, a weekend of cleaning and cooking is definitely on the cards.


    p.s did the bullying incident get sorted?

  2. I'm so excited for you guys and I have no doubt that you'll be very successful. The hook will be picked up soon enough and don't worry too much about the housework.

  3. Oh look at that gorgeous belly. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun being creative with your house plans - housework can wait!

  4. Exciting times :) Love that photo - you look so beautiful and that etsy skirt you bought (IG) looks fantastic! Have a great weekend. Kx

  5. What a gorgeous baby bump! Congratulations!!! It's been too long since I've joined in the fun at MCS - I've clearly missed a whole lot! Hope your freezer packing goes well. It quite satisfying to know that you don't HAVE to cook a meal from scratch each evening.

  6. It sounds like everything is going so well Mel I'm so happy that this new adventure is working out so well. Your baby bump is looking beautiful and growing so much. xx
